SPEED MENTORING WTIH THE STEP UP CLUB – Tuesday 21st November

HOW DO YOU GET A MENTOR? WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A MENTOR? AND WHY IS A MENTOR A GOOD IDEA ANYWAY?
The Step Up Club unravels this ubiquitous career mystery with the help of some rather successful friends. There will also be plenty of speed networking and wine thrown in for good measure.
But the word ‘mentoring’ is part of that career development jargon that seems to confuse rather than bolster.
So the Step Up Club is hosting its inaugural SPEED MENTORING event to unravel this confusion, and explore why we all need a mentor. An array of mentors even!
To help us work through the mentoring conundrum, we’ll also hear from Detox Kitchen’s founder, Lily Simpson, beauty entrepreneur Pavan Ahluwahlia, Olympic gold medalists and power couple Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh and acclaimed jeweller Dinny Hall.
As well as each of the speakers, the Step Up Club will host several rounds of speed networking to ensure that all guests mingle, and increase their chances of finding that illusive mentor on the night!

Location: The Hoxton, Holborn, 199-206 High Holborn, London,WC1V 7BD

We are afraid that the event is now SOLD OUT. Please email us to be put onto the waitlist.

With an introduction from Frame Gym’s formidable – and hilarious – Pip Black and Joan Murphy, the female duo will talk through teamwork, and how it remains a founding Frame ethos. Starts ups can be notoriously lonely islands to inhabit: so how do you thrive creatively and strategically when you work alone, or within a very small team?

Pip and Joan haven’t just broken every rule in the business book and made working out fun again, over the past 7 years, they’ve learnt what it means to be shrewd, supported businesswoman. “The majority of what we’ve achieved has been through hard work, perseverance and talking to lots of people who know a lot more about things than we do.”

We say, start feeling supported again, by making Step Up’s BETTER//TOGETHER breakfast, the start of your new look entrepreneurial support system. After all, it’s what we’re there for, plus there will be berries and cold pressed juice. And work doesn’t get much better than that.
